Morì oggi - 1 gennaio

Hank Williams

When I wrote about Hank Williams "A hundred floors above me in the tower of song", it's not some kind of inverse modesty. I know where Hank Williams stands in the history of popular song. Your Cheatin' Heart, songs like that, are sublime, in his own tradition, and I feel myself a very minor writer.
-Leonard Cohen
I became aware that in Hank's recorded songs were the archetype rules of poetic songwriting.
-Bob Dylan
You got to have smelt a lot of mule manure before you can sing like a hillbilly.

-Hank Williams

Morirono così
